Description
The patented X-Wall MX-256C (MX-256C) ASIC is the 7th gen of Enova X-Wall real-time Full Disk Encryption technology. Engineered specifically to encrypt entire drive (MBR, FAT, and OS) at SATA wire speed (sustained AES 256-bit throughput of 120MB/sec). MX-256C, a SATA to SATA chip engineered to include the full SATA protocol stacks, is transparent to host/drive. Authentication is separated from the core design of the MX-256C and can be versatile which may include Smartcard, Pre-boot PIN, TPM or Fingerprint. The MX-256C contains no NVM. Therefore at each power on reset authentication is needed.
